Salmon Treats


  • 1 8 oz. can salmon with juice

  • 3 eggs, shells included
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds ground up in coffee grinder
  • 1/2 cup flax seeds ground up in coffee grinder
  • 2-3 cups potato flour


Put these ingredients into a food processer, mix VERY WELL. Pour potato flour through the opening while the motor is running. I can't tell you exactly how much, but I would guess about 2-3 cups. When the dough forms, like a pie curst, and rolls into a ball it is ready to take out.
Dump this mess onto potato floured counter or board. Knead more flour into this and when it is a rolled out cookie consistency, it is ready to roll out into about 14 inch thick. I use a pizza cutter to roll our long strips and then cut crosswise to make samll squares . If you want FANCY you may use a cookie cutter. Bake on cookie sheets, sprayed Pam or line the sheet with parchemnt paper. I put in as many as will fit. Usually two whole cookie sheets suffices.
